. ostensibly a conflict with britain over national sovereignty the american war of 1812 very quickly became instead a test or a condition, test of the strength and meaning of american patriotism. now we often tend to forget about the war of 1812. it's easy to lose track of it between the glory of the revolutionary independence movement and the really transformative carnage of the civil war, but the war of 1812 does enjoy a certain dubious distinction of its own, and that is that it was the first war ever to be formerly declared in a modern democracy. in a democracy, public opinion matters. politicians gained and maintained power through the approval of the populace. so in strict military and diplomatic terms, the war of 1812 may not have accomplished very much. been in 1815 the british had burned washington d.c. to the ground. the national debt had nearly tripled from 45 million to 127 million all of the united states had accomplished was getting the british to maintain the status quo, that is to keep all matters of diplomatic -- exactly the same status they had before the war. all territ
